For 2009 Motivation, We Present Author Dara Torres

51GJSAN+G0L.jpg Age is Just A Number: Achieve Your Dreams At Any Stage In Your Life won’t be published until April, but it’s already available for pre-order. Just the cover alone, with the slim-hipped, tan and hyper-buffed Olympic superstar and 40-something mom Dara Torres, is motivation enough to hit the swimming pool and not the fridge during this holiday season. Not surprisingly, Torres is shaping up to be this generation’s Jack LaLanne (still alive, walking without a cane and weight lifting in his 90s). In Age Is Just a Number, the swimmer talks about aging, doubt and making a comeback after being out of the water for years. We’re banking on a Parade Magazine excerpt before the book actually hits stores. Stay tuned for this one.
